Description: Current literature on police officers engaged in extralegal violence suffers from a lack of distinction among the broad array of violent conduct included in the phenomenon.  This presentation discusses a model for classifying extralegal police violence into four types, organized by two factors:  antecedent aggression and role dependence. The authors also will summarize what current research tells us about causes and prevention of extralegal police violence in each of the four types.

Description:  Systemic sex therapy has been around for over 30 years, but applying modern brain science to sexual dysfunctions and desire problems is something new. Advances in neurosciences indicate the brain wires interpersonally, as a result of personal experience with others, and in particular, during "moments of meeting" (shared attention). For better and for worse, good and bad sexual experiences of intense moments of meeting producing heightened brain plasticity. Unfortunately, the massive anxiety many people experience during sex contributes to negative brain plasticity, sexual dysfunctions and desire problems. Theory of Mind (mind-mapping) plays a critical role creating and maintaining sexual problems. Mind-mapping is the ability of the brain to make a mental map of another person's mind) plays a critical role in anxiety regulation, sexual desire problems and sexual dysfunctions, as well emotional intimacy and sexual satisfaction in the worst and best of times. In this symposium two presenters lay out various ways mind-mapping plays out in couples' bedrooms as well as in treatment for the problems this often causes. They then outline the rudiments of Crucible® Neurobiological Therapy, which harnesses mind-mapping brain science to resolve complex sexual and relationship difficulties. The discussant will consider the presenters' thesis from the Couple and Family Therapy perspective.

Title: Single-Session Therapy – Capturing the Moment

Time: 11:00 AM-12:50 PM

Location: Convention Center Room 322A

ABPP Specialty Area: Couple and Family Psychology

Division Affiliation: 17, 29, 30, 43

Description: Research from numerous sites indicates that many effective therapies involve brief lengths of treatment, including a single session. Original investigators and developers of the Single Session Therapy approach will describe findings and methods. A unique model will be presented for providing psychological services that takes advantage of clients' readiness for change. Research suggests that psychotherapy can be most effective if begun at the point that clients are most motivated to change; however, many current models of service delivery unintentionally place barriers bertween clients and service providers. We will present a walk-in counseling model that provides services to clients at the moment that they decide they are ready for change. Walking in is ubiquitous in our culture. "Walk-ins Welcome" signs are so common in many area of our everyday lives that we barely give them our attention. The presenters will provide an overview of "walking in" in our culture in general as well as in the provision of psychological services. A single-session mind-set is ideal for walk-in work. Experiences implementing walk-in therapy/counseling centers in the U.S., Canada, and Mexico will be described.
